Flower Reading is an intuitive reading where the clients who want to look at some aspect of their life from a different point of view can be guided to tap into their deeper wisdom and look at what’s happening in the present from a different angle, which are the energies that are unfolding in their life in the present moment, and how they might be related to their personality and their soul.
It came to me as an unexpected gift, a real surprise flowering out of my heartfelt connection with Bach Flowers, and something unique usually happens with it for most of the clients, but how does it work?
Flower reading is different for everyone. Depending on the person’s issues, focus can be on anything from releasing stagnating energy and past trauma, working through a current hardship, or helping a client to activate their highest potential and life work or make a difficult decision. Sometimes it can just be about finding a more real connection with their own inner guidance to make the next moves, or to better understand what's going on in a certain situation.
Intuitive readings do not read the future. Instead, they read a person’s energy, thru empathic listening and intuition.
I use a chart of 40 different colors and invite the person to choose one or another, giving different indications according to the unfolding of the session: the one you like best, one you don’t like, etc...
Those colors represent for me a map of the emotions and energies that might be unraveling, and by bringing them in the open we can together draw a map and find a compass to navigate, with ease and clarity, in whatever life is presenting, and to increase one’s capacity to be present and accept what is there.
Betty describes like this her experience with Flower Reading:
"Within the quietude of your instinct, you don’t think but feel which colour speaks to you, there and then.
It’s not about a colour you love to wear or really dislike since you were little, a few hues truly vibrate on the page here and now and whisper “pick me”.
And then the insights from Ilaria begin to unravel - gently, honestly, and you hear what the chosen flower colours represent.
And then she delves deeper and she unravels what they represent and mean FOR YOU.
Uncomfortable truths, real illuminations.
Beacuse they belong to you, and they are being expressed by your choices, driven by your inner needs often hidden from yourself.
What we don't want to hear, or face, or admit that we are struggling with.
It’s not all overwhelmingly dark.
Strengths are highlighted too, and the inner resources that we have within ourselves are brought to the surface as ways of moving forwards.
There is no judgement, only support. Direction. Ilaria shines a light towards certain paths you could take, where Bach flowers grow either side, because Mother Nature is all about balance."
Flower Readings are sacred and spiritual to me.
Of course there’s a big part of it that is psychological, but these readings provide you an in-depth look at your soul’s journey and your life path, so that also the emotions and life events you’re busy with in the present moment can be read in a different perspective.
You will be encouraged to look to your own power and harness it to access your divine inner knowing.
A reading is not about fixing you, but empowering you.
Flower readings can seem strange at first, but what happens is actually very simple: with the shared intent of opening the space for the soul to speak, both the client and I get to be guided towards what wants to be expressed, acknowledged, integrated.
These sessions are just like a session with a trusted advisor, a counsellor, a mentor. The main difference is that none of us knows what will show up and where will it take us.
They can be enlightening. They come from a place of love and love brings forth the light.
"I had never done a Bach Flower reading before my first session with Ilaria and didn’t know what to expect. At the beginning she very simply asks you to associate colors with responses to her questions; from there she does a primary analysis based on the colors. I was blown away by her ability to intuit and read my responses and most importantly to offer input on how to interact with certain feelings and situations differently. The Bach Flower compositions she suggests have always been the perfect mix for me in that particular moment—though they are not intended to be a cure-all, but rather to work in tandem with the conversation and thoughts that come up during the session. I go back periodically when I feel like I need to reconnect with myself or need extra assistance during a particularly difficult moment—each time I leave the session with a renewed sense of calm and an appreciation for the insights that Ilaria offers."

My heartfelt intention is to point my clients toward their own intuitive powers, and expand their capacity to trust.
People can choose to come to experience something less traditional than Counselling, to be guided to access their own intuition without the limitations of the ordinary mind, or just to receive messages from different parts of their being.
All it requires is the willingness to open the door, and take a look.
